    Parse the bios by Phoenix Tool; it'll give you the whitelist.

    Select the bios, then Phoenix Tool prompts you the whitelist with the card names.

    it usually pops up .. not on all bios tho.

    what u can do is go to the pci device id database and see the device name of the adapter .. but u need HP branded card or it wont work with original bios

    i see it has only 1 in bios sp60864

    Wifi Whitelist
    VID PID SVID SPID Adapter Name
    ---- ---- ---- ---- -------------------- ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    8086 4239 8086 1311 PD9622ANHU 0x4239 - Intel(R) Centrino(R) Advanced-N 6200 AGN (Intel Corporation)

    strange that SubVendor id is 8086 and not Hp 103C

    The whitelist you found is wrong I think. Laptop came with Broadcom 4313 and it works with whitelist. I tried with an wireless card I can't remember it's brand currently, system halts on boot and gives a message like "This device is not compatible with this PC. Remove the card and restart."

    Broadcom 4313's Device ID shown on Device Manager: PCI\VEN_14E4&DEV_4727&SUBSYS_1483103C&REV_01

    my best guess is .. its in DMI of bios.. but bios file added new model Intel ?
